Default Easy solution to this problem!

There is a very easy solution to this problem; I do it on my system:


archlinux x86_64
2 nVidia GTX 560s, one connected via HDMI to monitor
motherboard has intel audio connected via SPDIF to receiver

I disable both nVidia hdmi audio devices, leaving only the intel hda on the motherboard working

Find the nVidia audio devices:

lspci | grep -i audio

Find the folder containing the device:

find /sys/devices -name *01:00.1

Disable the device early in the boot process: (in my case, via /etc/rc.local)

echo 1 > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.1/remove

Reboot and the nvidia hda audio devices will be disabled and no driver module will load.

This Whole M$ vs Linux Thing is Quite Simple Really ...

The Mainstream Generally Don't Choose Linux Because They Have to Think to Use It.
